9:02 am
leaders has been cordial and professional, but i think at a certain point, the american people run out of patience. >> we will carry the president's address live at 11 this morning here on fox 5. we'll also stream it on a fire at holy cross hospital forced the evacuation of some patients. it started outside the building, but smoke was coming into the third floor maternity ward. fire and rescue crews helped hospital staff evacuate patients to other areas. they say none were in danger. no baby deliveries were going on at the time. there were no injuries. for the 18th time this year, a d.c. police officer faces criminal charges. larry say is accused of sexually assaulting three women while on duty. the most recent happened last july. authorities say he approached the women on the street and ordered them to follow him to a

secluded area. say had his police powers revoked last year. police have arrested a second person in an acid attack from last year. katrina watts and her daughter were injured in this attack. one was arrested in january. yesterday police arrested tamara jackson of the district and charged her with assault. she coerced or influenced anderson to throw acid on watts. investigators don't think there are anymore suspects here. there's a bond review hearing for the man police say stole a car with a toddler and the toddler's mother inside. it started wednesday night at a gas station. it ended on the beltway. the 24-year-old victim bailed out of the car with her son. >> i really didn't want to jump, but i didn't know what else to do. i acted like i was putting my
9:04 am
seat belt on. i just used this leg first and i jumped out. >> the suspect 22-year-old tehran white of baltimore is being held in rockwell. a maryland man is behind bars charged with trying to kidnap a 2-year-old from the best buy on frederick road. the child's father says jermaine palmer grabbed his son and took off running on wednesday. the father chased the man down and started fighting him. witnesses jumped in and helped him hold the suspect until police arrived. the child was not hurt. adrian fente has a new job. >> he sat down with us to talk about his new position as special council. he also shared what he thinks about the state of d.c. under the gray administration.
9:05 am
>> what do you think of the state of d.c. right now? >> it it doesn't say that everything you did was wrong. that's clearly not what our election was about. they said that some of the things we were doing were very good, but there was more things that the people wanted to have happen. that's not dissimilar to what happened when i took over the government. i said my predecessor was a successful mayor, but we wanted to do some things and add on to it. that's what the administration is doing. after they are finished, there will be a new mayor. that's part of a city going no question about it. i grew up in washington d.c. in so many ways, it's come a long way. there's no single person that's responsible for that. a lot of people contributed. when i was on the council, i worked with a lot of people who did a lot for the city. the mayor williams and a lot of people have done a lot since i left. >> when you look at the transition that's going on now,
9:06 am
one of your challengers then is now accusing mayor gray of a pay for play scandal. that he was paid off to attack you during the campaign. we know that's now under investigation. what are your thoughts on that with brown and gray? >> i really don't follow the issues that close. they certainly have been in the media. i made a public decision just to let any investigations follow their course. but not to comment on them. i think i owe the new administration and the city the opportunity to get things done without me saying things in the media or in public. >> has anyone involved in the investigation contacted you regarding this issue? >> they have not contacted me.
9:07 am
>> okay. you sat on council for six years and watched what was going on. there's a lot of scandal from the president of d.c. council to some of its most important members who served right alongside with you. what do you make of what's going on right now. >> i read but i want the best for the city. i'm wishing the city does well. the city always lands on its feet. it's a great city. i was born and raised here. i will live here the rest of my life. i probably don't follow the issues as closely as you do. but i have confidence in the city. i think everything will turn out great in the end. >> one of the big things that you were concerned about was d.c. public schools. michelle reed was a big name to help come in and change things. her successor now kentucky ya
9:08 am
henderson who was also working under michelle reed, what do you know about her? how do you think she's moving the system forward? >> she's fantastic. obviously i thought and think the world of michelle. she's still a great leader. kia is absolutely was the right choice to succeed her. we stood on stage with mayor grade and michelle. she's gotten a lot of acclaims. i have actually seen henderson on a national education reform trail. she's very well respected nationally. that's good for the city. >> just from sitting here and talking to you, you seemed removed from the politics that are going on right now. i don't know if that's relief for you to sit back, but you still have a lot of supporters out there. people still wanted to write
9:09 am
you in for the election. would you run for mayor of the district of columbia again? >> i wouldn't. we certainly have a lot of supporters and appreciate people who will continue to be supportive of what we're doing, but the election decides who will be the mayor. i think it's up to everyone including everyone who was in the race to support the winner. most importantly, i love washington d.c. i want it to succeed. i'm raising my kids here. i'm very hopeful that things will continue to go well. and i believe they will. >> a great interview there. the mayor said he's done with politics, but he will be happy to work at the grass roots level supporting the people he believes will improve the district and the country. scary moments for a woman
9:10 am
on metro. she nearly died after falling on the tracks. we'll hear from the man that saved her life and have more on what she was doing that caused her to fall. that's straight ahead. plus i have some help answering this week's ask allison question. what happens when you head to court for rights if you're not living with the mother of the child. it's not as simple as if. you head to court for child custody. we'll talk about it coming up next. 
9:11 am
empty nest, new kitchen, new us? who are we? chic, modern, daring dinner-party hosts. that sounds dangerous, maybe we're more the tradiotional sunday brunch set? i'll expect slippers and a cocktail to be ready when i get home from work. point taken. how about... peaceful, quiet cottage in the country folk? now that's us.

save up to 20% on every kitchen style, now until august 21st at ikea, the life improvement store.
9:13 am
9:14 am
it's time for ask allison. what do you suggest if we take her to court? for what can happen in court in general terms, we have brought in a friend of the show. he's a family law attorney with a family law practice. thank you for coming in today. let's set some ground rules. we're not giving this viewer any advice. we're just talking in general terms. you asked some questions about this. i can tell you that the child is now 2 years old. the father's name is not on the birth certificate. they just found out he was the father a week or so ago. what's your reaction to this? >> first of all, i read the letter. i'd like to commend the wife and the husband father. my understanding is they are supporting this child. that's a good thing.
9:15 am
and the mother or the wife is now supporting her husband in this right now. this is a very difficult situation. it's not uncommon that this happens. there are custody issues to be involved. what is the relationship with this father wants to have with this child. support issues to be resolved. the wife's relationship to the father and relationship between this child and the other children that might be in the intact family. >> there is another child from this married couple. does this man have any rights if he's the biological father? >> he has absolute rights. he has rights to pay child support. and he has the right to seek custody if he wanted to. he has full rights as if they had been a married couple. the wife has no rights. she cannot seek any rights.
9:16 am
i will say if she's working, her income does not come into play when thinking about child support. it's just the father's income that comes into play for child support purposes. >> the dad is walking kind of a tight rope here. he's between both women. clearly, this is not how he expected this to turn out. however, now he's in the situation. he doesn't want to rock the boat and go to court, but can the biological mother just say you can't see this child? and what happens then? >> mother can say that. if the father wants to have a relationship with the child, he can seek that relationship through the courts. he can file for visitation or custody. she will reciprocate and file a petition. they will be before the court. i would suggest that the best way to resolve this is out of court. both of them seek the advice of counsel and do it out of court. do whatever is best for the child. they are trying to do that.
9:17 am
but it's getting a little rough. >> a little human nature coming into this. a little jealousy and territory y'all issues. the mother of the child doesn't want the wife around the child, but suppose the wife doesn't want the child to visit the husband. >> that's where he's in between these women. we don't know how long he had the relationship with this other woman whether it continued after the birth of this child. we have all these dynamics going on and issues between each party and how they work together. >> at the end of the day though, you say seek legal advice. >> seek legal advice and try to work it out out of court. >> do you see issues like this? >> unfortunately, it comes up all the time. >> i really appreciate you stopping by. >> my pleasure. >> we hope we helped the view
9:18 am
per. round of applause. you're trying to give this child a head start in life. we appreciate that. good luck to you. we'll be calling you again. great information. thank you. here we go again. more delays on metro this weekend. this time for maintenance on the orange, red, blue, and yellow lines. track work begins tonight at 10 and runs through closing on sunday. check metro's website for specific details. we all know texting and driving is dangerous, but what about texting while walking? earlier this month, a woman nearly died after falling on to the metro tracks while texting. a man heard the woman scream and ran to help. he jumped on the tracks and pulled her to safety. the hero is sharing his story only with fox 5. >> i had to take a leap of faith. that was the scariest part.
9:19 am
i had to hoist her up off the ground and put her on to the platform. >> that was good timing because just minutes after she was rescued from the tracks, a train arrived. we are going all out today in honor of the premier of the last harry potter film. >> we sent holly to potions and lotions class. >> reporter: i think this dragon's blood would make for some good ingredients. where am i finding all this stuff? we're live this morning at the apothecary museum in alexandria. a real place you can come visit. we'll talk more about the history of what you'll find here and where they get something like dragon's blood and also a final magical moment that will indeed be memorable. that's later.
